Great food for the price

The food is good and there a lot of food for the price. The best mango margarita that I have had in Myrtle Beach, SC.

As a college student, I'm in love with patio. It's right near the college and offers big portions, good quality food and affordable. I love their happy hour. The servers are always nice and it's always a good time there.

Okay, so I am looking at others photos and ours looked nothing like it. Maybe it's because we got take out but ours was just a big mess of mush.... We couldn't even tell who's was who's. The rice and beans were good but the main meals were really bad.

Love this place and the service is great! Yes, it's close to a couple of colleges but that only seems to keep the prices reasonable if not LOW! The food has always been FRESH and their personal blend for their house margarittas is the best I have ever had anywhere! They make their own salsa and you can get it... More

El Patio always has the best Mexican food on the beach. Their food is authentic and always fresh tasting. The menu has a wide variety to accommodate all palates. They always cater to your needs and the staff is super friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
